TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Lots of local folks are providing comfort for those recovering from Irma. On Friday, hundreds of Florida State students teamed up with Leon County to pack 5,000 kits full of food and water.
They also put together 2,000 bags of hygiene products. The supplies was left over from the capital city's preparation for the hurricane.
"A lot of people here are not from Florida themselves and they're still sitting here with us giving donations for Miami so it means that we're an actively involved community and we care about the well-being of not only ourselves, but the rest of the country," said FSU student, Christopher Pinango.
The bags are headed to south Florida where the Salvation Army will distribute them to people in need.
